Happy Wednesday readers! Today is also the Feast of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven. Whenever we sing 'Hail, Holy Queen' in Church, I have the Sister Act version in my mind, which makes it difficult to sing with a straight face! :)
August is zooming by too - has anyone else noticed that?! Somehow that seems to happen more often towards the end of the year - must be all the back to school vibes. Meanwhile, I was prepping some bobbins for quilting and decided my sewing room was a bit too chaotic. So I spent an evening cleaning, sorting fabrics and rearranging some drawers and got it all straightened up again. The scrap bin is still overflowing, but that's a good problem. ;)
It's a good thing I did neaten up, as Momm is coming for a quilt weekend! Can't wait to pull everything back out and have several days of solid quilt talk and fabric play this weekend.
-Another zip pouch - this time using this tutorial from Skip to My Lou (it's awsome!). This was a test run so I can use it with my Junior Quilters and teach the girls how to put in a zipper. I ordered lots of pretty zips online and can't wait to use them.
-J's quilt: J has been asking for a quilt for a couple years now, and has settled (mostly) onto a design. So Momm & I will be working on that this weekend for sure - have the design already, just need fabrics and it should be fairly straight-forward to piece.
|all quilted & ready to bind!|
-Swoon: backing is almost complete - hooray! This was a summer goal of mine - to have the backing pieced and the quilt basted. almost there....
